Esther Zimmer

Hello, I’m Esther…

I spent almost 20 years in a corporate career that was eating away at my heart and slowly suffocating my soul.

Then, in the summer of 2013 I did what many people dream about, I left my corporate career to launch my own business; as a personal stylist.

A business I never truly loved.

Finally, at the end of 2016 I quit my personal styling business. A decision I made far difficult than it needed to be. I share my journey in Be Brave Enough To Quit.

I hold a post-graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology from Birkbeck, University of London, and I’d been coaching on and off in the 10 years since I completed my initial accreditation as a Life and Personal Performance Coach with The Coaching Academy. Throughout 2017 I focused on my work as a coach. Yet once again, this didn’t feel ‘quite right’.

I’m now pursuing the life I’ve always wanted, a life that feels true to me; writing whilst travelling the world.

Writing is how I make sense of the world, my thoughts and my feelings. I believe the way we think about and speak to ourselves, and the stories we hold onto and tell others about who we are, can shape our lives in the most profound ways. I’m currently writing my first book and you can read my blog here.

If you’d like to keep in touch you can sign up for my monthly Love Letters below, or say hello here.

Let Me Send You Love Letters...

I know, yet another person asking you to hand over your email address.

Here’s the deal though: I treat your in-box like a sacred space and my monthly Love Letters are a labour of love in themselves; they’re a way to go a bit deeper and get a little more personal than a blog post.

Most of all, these letters are about forming a connection; hopefully they’ll inspire you and maybe some days they’ll even help you feel a little less alone. None of these things can be achieved via typical ‘newsletters’ – which are usually formal and just trying to sell you something (although occasionally I will include information about new courses, as and when I offer them).

So many of us feel like everyone else knows what they’re doing – sometimes I just like to be reminded that it’s okay to be a perfectly imperfect human. So, I write about life’s ups and downs and what I’m learning as I dare to tread my own path – and occasionally I share useful resources – which I hope will help you tread yours.

My Love Letters are meant to feel like a personal note from a friend, something I hope you’ll look forward to reading with a cuppa in your hand. This is an invitation for you to take a few moments each month to receive some encouragement, honesty, inspiration and love…

What I love most about my letters from Esther is that they are not like other 'newsletters', instead, it feels like a personal note just to me, sharing her own experiences and learning, right when I need it the most!

Thank you, Esther, for such wonderful words. I feel like I've discovered a friend in the midst of the striving and swirling around me.
